St Catherine's Well, Beaumont Crescent
St Catherine's Well, Beaumont Crescent, taken 7 years ago
Out in the countryside until the 20th century, this old conduit head was marked as 'Conduit Springs' on old OS maps. It is now sandwiched between 1920's suburban houses and surrounded by a metal fence. The sandstone building with the steeply pitched roof will have covered the spring head. Before the construction of Spon End waterworks in the mid 19th century the spring provided a water supply via pipe to public conduits in the Spon Street area, one location being Conduit Yard which was situated near St John's church.
